Percolate Peace (Day 4)

Percolate Peace

Good Morning from Maine!  #Gratitude 

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. In my book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through, today and for the next several days, we are following along with Percolate Point 9 – Percolate Peace.

Percolate Peace

Lifestyle changes occur when we become aware that our ability to experience peace is challenged at some level. To more easily return to a state where you feel peaceful to your core, we can make change.  Often, even a tiny change can help you change your course.  Awareness moves with us as we pay attention to the way something or someone makes us feel and we move our energy.    Let’s think about the graphic below and how our choices add or distract from our levels of peace.

The types of choices you make in your life either add to or distract from your levels of peace.  These choices move your energy around. Some are unaware or not tuned into their energy shifts and thus not fully aware of their full potential of centered peace within. When we move too fast through our lives we might miss cues, which can bring us out of balance.  Energy is always changing.  To help you find your core of peace, think with your heart.

JOURNAL

Imagine if you started and ended each day from peace. Write about what that looks like for you.

Are you thinking with your heart?

How are you spending your energy?

What kind of choices are you making?

Does your behavior match your values?

Is it difficult for you to break from your friends and the crowd and follow your own highest, truest values and self?

Good Morning from Maine!  #Gratitude 

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. In my book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through, today, we are following along with Percolate Point 6 – Expresso Yourself.

Percolate Values

Percolate-Values

As we grow, change and age, we discover and create a value system.  Our lives and our value system are also dynamic and can change.  Does your behavior match your values? We usually operate somewhere on a day-to-day continuum depending on how calm and aware we are of what our inner voice says.  When we aren’t able to hear the highest self-talk, we tend to neglect our self-care and turn to external sources.  This can trigger imbalance.  When we are quiet and tune-in to ourselves and circumstances, we can bring ourselves back to core.

Here are a few examples of my personal values:

1. Practice Gratitude

2. Developing and Maintaining a practice of self-love and self-worth, where behaviors match values

3. Moments Mattering

4. Developing, mentoring and inspiring others

5. Having an abundance of integrity

6. Taking responsibility

7. Believing & Having Courage

8. Never Giving Up

9. Living to my best, highest self and potential – Being My Best You

10. Embracing aging with grace, humor and style

There are situations all throughout our lifetimes where behaviors happen around us that we don’t agree with.  It might be difficult to stand and hold your values in place, especially when you don’t want to behave in-line with a crowd or small group or even yourself for that matter.  Develop your core values and know who you and what your being can and can’t handle.  Our bodies tell us if you listen.  They tell us in the form of illness, tiredness, lack of focus, happiness, positive energy and more.  Listen to yourself.

JOURNAL

What are your top 10 or 20 values?

Does your behavior match your values?

Do you know your core values?

Do you know and recognize when your body is in imbalance mode?

What do you do to bring yourself back to center?

What behavior is in your highest, best interest and helps you be your authentic best?

How do you remove yourself from situations where the behaviors don’t match your own values? How do you handle these situations?

Be Principled

Percolate-Kindness

Let’s Percolate about kindness.

I probably don’t need to remind you to be kind.  However, you may be feeling like you want to remind someone else to be kind.  When someone is unkind to you, someone else or to something, you instantly know it.  It stings, it hurts and it can be just flat-out bothersome, particularly when you feel, perceive or are aware that the unkind behavior or comments are coming from a real intention or deliberate place or even ignorance.

Take yesterday, for example, with a review I received on Amazon.  For Percolate, there are oodles of kind, sweet and loving reviews and apparently one really nasty one. Several friends of mine drew my attention to the comment asking if I could have it removed, because they so strongly disagreed with it.  This all prompted me to poke my nose  around and look at the customer reviews for other best-selling books. I was saddened to see most had the same type of similar, hurtful remarks on their books too and some much more cruel than the one I had received.    They were unkind and uncalled for.

I had two responses:  The first was to set up my own reviewer account and give out very positive reviews to books, people and other items I think are the best and worthy of your time and attention.   This Percolates Kindness into the world and more positive, real, credible and helpful reviews.  (I urge you to do the same if you have time.)

My next response was to send love, angels,  kindness, grace and compassion to the reviewer of the nasty remark for Percolate, as the person must surely need it.

My point is that kindness starts with each one of us.

What we put out into the world, we get back in measure.

Sometimes we need a kindness reminder and wake up call.

Sometimes, unmistakably, people act kind toward us, when they could be the most mad or irritated. They overlook our mistakes, crank, negativity and so forth to help us learn and accept kindness and love by percolating kindness and grace to us in hopes we receive it and pass it on – perhaps breaking a cycle.

Kindness fosters Love, Grace and Gratitude.

Can you be kind 24/7? Maybe – Maybe Not, but generally I find most people, including myself, to be kind, mannered, graceful and so forth. We all have our moments…  interesting though, we have control over ourselves, our moments and how we behave by taking responsibility.

Kindness and Grace are the types of ways to Percolate where the behavior never gets old, cold or stale.

Goodness is timeless.

Grace is timeless.

Gentleness is timeless.

Gratitude is timeless.

Kindness is timeless.

JOURNAL

Are you kind to others?

What does kindness look like to you and how could you be more kind and loving to others?

Has anyone ever been unkind to you?  What would happen if you approached the situation with love instead of more negativity?

Is your behavior in line with your values?

Are you living a life of gratitude and awareness?

Have a conversation with yourself about kindness and write down 10-15 ways you could be more kind to yourself and others.

Ask someone this question, “What do you need and how can I be more kind to you?”

PERCOLATE

Be Kind.
